Re: Hydroclorothiazide & Lisinopril
you don't know that 135 over 78 is excellent?
Dr's often mix drugs in low doses because side effects are often too severe on a high dose of one drug. That sounds reasonable and often really does prevent intolerable side effects. But as for safety I don't know but I don't like the idea of taking a mix of pharmaceuticals for long term, how could that be good? Even over the counter drugs are not safe when taken long term or extra doses.
My goal is to get off meds if possible with diet and lifestyle change. It's a slow process but I'm making progress. I'm planning to replace lisinopril with pomegranate juice or concentrate. You can't take both at same time because pomegranate juice is as powerful as an ACE med! I'm slowly reducing lisinopril and plan to stop it completely, wait maybe a week, then start pomegranate juice. If it doesn't work I'l try other supplements. Possibly nitric oxide tabs.
